ABSTRACT

In Korea, the government has established a policy agenda to encourage high growth. The industry economy has significantly been progressed and almost every people has lived in a metropolitan lifestyle. However, with said change in an economic society, an emanation of environmental pollutants has increased and then lakes and rivers which stinks has emerged nationwide. On the other hand, Korean government had also focused on rapid growth as a fundamental policy. Since 1990's, the government fortunately has regarded politic motto as 'sustainable development' which development and environment can be coexisted. Moreover, in legislative prospective, the government has improved and consolidated laws concerning environment from the enactment of fundamental law of environmental policy in 1990. As a result, the government has significantly improved water quality of a public body of water overall, focusing on a large river. On the other hand, the 'lakes-and-marshes' is trapped water by nature and construction of a dam or bank in a river such as a dammed pool. The water pollution of 'lakes-and-marshes' has been deeply deteriorated since it is a constructively closed or almost closed body of water. The water quality of lakes and marshes become worse and then it cannot be used as an agricultural water. Under said critical mind, this paper introduces and reviews the Japan model in the way to approach it with comparative prospective of legislation and policy and it is on the research purpose of the improvement or preservation of the water quality of lakes and marshes in Korea. It is because Japan has early been interested in this field. It is also because it has nationally tried to improve water quality of lakes and marshes at the government level. This parer, at least, can also suggest a direction and implication concerning the matter for protecting the worse water quality of lakes and marshes in Korea.
